    This comes from Len Pasquarelli's Morning After on espn.com:

    "If he lands the Houston head coach job, Gary Kubiak may attempt to hire current Cleveland offensive line coach Jeff Davidson as his offensive coordinator. And he might also consider University of Texas offensive coordinator Greg Davis for the position of quarterbacks coach."

    Just thought it was interesting. (If it's already been posted, my bad.)

    I had heard Shanahan ok'd him to take some of their coaches with to the Texans, including the OLine coach, I think the WR coach, and I don't remember exactly who else, so those would be options for position/coordinator coaches too.

    No, good post. I found this article that says something similar...

    The Texans seem to be moving toward hiring Gary Kubiak as head coach and Jerry Gray as defensive coordinator. There are whispers Texas assistant Greg Davis will come in some capacity.

    Would Jerry Gray switch teams just to stay as a coordinator?

    Excellent news.

    This team will be rebuilt around Vince Young. Mark it down.

    I don't think the NFL will allow it unless he is fired.

    I dunno if they would lean toward him but there would be one big supporter of him in our coaching ranks i imagine...so its possible that, even if they dont necessarily want young right now, it increases the chances that they could be talked into it. Especially if Bush doesnt declare.

    The only O Co-ordinator on the planet worse than Pendry. What does he know about coaching an NFL quarterback. I doubt he contributed much to Young.
    Guess if you are going to screw up the team by bringing in Young you might as well make it complete and bring in Davis. You think it hurts to watch the Texans now, it would be worse. I couldn't watch.
    Then again, I can survive without pro football. I'd still have my Irish.

    Funny how all this comes about now after repeatedly saying we are going for Reggie Bush and Vince Young declares so fast.

    UT needs to make a statue of Greg Davis that says "To the flats."

    I've never seen anyone call more flat passes than that guy.

    I thought this last year because Greg Davis was basically a Chris Palmer clone but Vince mentioned that they basically run the same offense as the Indy Colts. Don't we want that?? Besides I don't think Davis would have full hold on the offense. I am sure Kubiak would have more say and be more willing to overrule.

    Exactly. This will still be Kubiak's team and if he sees something else, he will call it.

    If his agent told Bob Glauber that he will be announcing his decision. I don't think that he is coming back to USC.
